The New Smyrna Beach Police Athletic League and Pickleball Club joined forces to introduce pickleball to local high school and middle school students.

The PAL Program, lead by Officer Allen Washington, initiated the idea of teaching the game of pickleball to the local youth and the club jumped at the chance to assist.

The club will sponsor each participant by donating a shirt imprinted with the NSB Pickleball Club’s logo along with the New Smyrna Beach PAL Program’s logo.

Volunteers from the club will teach the game pickleball to the youth throughout the month of September at 6 p.m. each Monday and Wednesday at the Babe James Community Center.

Starting in October, the youth and adults will begin playing games, and the youth will be coached in the finer techniques of the game.

In mid-November, the students and pickleball coaches will compete in a mixed doubles pickleball tournament.

High school or middle school students who would like to sign up for the PAL Pickleball Program, may contact Officer Washington at (386) 424-2263 or stop by the Babe James Community Center.

If you would like to be a coach and involved with the Pal Pickleball Program, email Jim Brown, NSB Pickleball Club President, at jimbrown1331@gmail.com. For more information, visit nsbpickleballclub.com.
